  • Vanilla ice cream

  3. Stir through flour and ½ the Jelly Tots, mixing until a firm dough forms.
  4. Cover with cling film and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 160°C.
  6. Grease an 18-20cm cast-iron pan.

Cook's Note: To make this on an open fire, use a flat-bottom potjie with a lid. Place the potjie on a medium-low braai grid in the centre of the braai, over moderate-to-cool coals. Carefully place a few coals on the lid to create an oven effect. Bake for 40-50 minutes.
